PEOPLE ARE SAYING

I have been learning Russian from Maria for over 6 months now and have found the online lessons to be convenient and informative. Maria has made an effort to modify her teaching methods specific to the problems associated with how I learn and understand the Russian language. She takes the time to tirelessly explain to me the various aspects of the language, even though she has explained them to me many times before, to ensure that I can understand and progress. I am not someone who easily learns a language and are a slow learner in this respect, she has shown patience and understanding, of which I’m very grateful.

It is a total pleasure to learn with Maria, she is a real professional in what she does! She applies a different approach depending on the goal and I like it! Her lessons are always interesting, simple and easy to grasp; she always helps to understand grammar and spoken peculiarities. But what’s more, she gives insights into lexical characteristics of the American vs British English, which make it clear for me why you need to say something this way or another.

LILIA, RUSSIA
A STUDENT OF ENGLISH

I have been studying Russian with Maria for pretty much one year. I love the different approaches she uses and how we tried to find the best suitable way for me. Also I was able to adjust the work load each month if needed which allowed me to study more intensively during some months with more lessons each week. This flexibility is amazing!
Moreover, Maria, regularly asks about preferences in topics or tries out new methods to make learning fun. also she keeps track on the gaps that still occur and where I have difficulties to improve and work on those before or while adding new vocabulary or grammar topics.
As for my own input: Maria usually asks how much time I have for homework and adjusts the workload accordingly. I just have to be honest with myself and reflect how much I can actually do. This way I have made a huge progress during the last year. I am grateful for the guidance and support on the way and look forward to the upcoming year of studying.

I’m very satisfied with Maria’s teaching method, because it’s more adapted to individual student and not chained to some specific boring English books. For me personally, each lesson is very interesting because it gives me knowledge of not only English language itself but also in many other interesting and modern topics.

BEQA, GEORGIA
A STUDENT OF ENGLISH

I have been studying Russian with Maria for quite some time now and are incredibly happy with the result. Maria is deeply knowledgeable about many aspects of the Russian language which not only helps the student in more deeply understanding the origin of various words but also how they are applied in everyday use. One of the reasons I have continued learning with Maria is that she is interested in how an individual’s mind works in processing information, whereby she tries to apply this understanding to her individual teachings to attain best affect. I have no hesitation in recommending Maria as an outstanding tutor for those who wish to learn Russian or English.

CIHAT, TURKEY
A STUDENT OF RUSSIAN

I was studying with a couple of native speakers, but there was little progress from these classes. Because natives correct your mistakes, but they don’t work with a grammar materials. Maria, on the contrary, pays attention not only to speaking, but also to grammatical materials, with which problems are revealed during the conversation. therefore I highly recommend this teacher.
